• Garden Party Celebrates Poetry Workshop Creativity

    From topics as simple as bubbles and pieces of paper to those as in-depth as the town and a variety of personal thoughts, Newtown children and their parents expressed themselves in creative poetic pieces during a workshop-culminating garden party on the scenic backyard grounds of the Dana Holcombe House on Monday evening.

  • Poetry Workshop Inspires Students, Parents, Community

    Members of a poetry workshop put some of the finishing touches on a book during a final meeting of the group on Monday, May 13.

    The workshop started meeting six weeks ago, and was co-taught by Fairfield University Professor and Newtown resident Carol Ann Davis and Hawley Elementary School fourth grade teacher Lea Attanasio. The pair offered the workshop for students throughout town in third through sixth grade and their parents. The workshop was free and offered at Hawley Elementary School on Monday evenings.
